Ready to battle indiscipline
THE EDITOR, Sir:
In The Sunday Gleaner, I read where a boy forced a sexual act on a seven-year-old girl and when the mother went to the school about it, she was told that kind of behaviour was commonplace. The mother's solution was filthy.
Mr Editor, the insidious chikungunya got me and my four retired professional friends and we are prepared to limp into those schools immediately.
We will teach the boys hygiene as a subject, show them how to use the toilet, how to wash their hands with soap and water, and how to secure their trousers on their bodies during class time.
We will teach respect for others and self-respect to the children (for they are children) and have special sessions with the girls.
We will teach them to protect themselves and, if push comes to shove, how to bite the offending organ and send the disgusting boy howling, clutching his crotch and trying to hold on to it.
The parents of the organ-damaged boy will not dare to turn up at the school to challenge the principal and other members of the staff.
Mr Editor, allow us to use your medium to ask schools with this awful problem to call Retired Workers Incorporate, and we are available 24 by 7. This practice must be stopped now.
